as I have done

He had just finished.  The bath water was still hot.  I was too tired... it was pajamas and bed.  I climbed into bed with sore, achy feet.  "Come, let me wash your feet, rub the ache away."  Why do we always resist.  "No" I said, knowing he was more tired that I and feeling immediately like Simon Peter... 'Lord, are You going to wash my feet?'

He asked again.  I went.  Why do I resist? If you are a doer this part is not always easy, letting others also do - but necessary.  Hot water and a good rub... wonderful!

'I have set you an example that you should do as I have done'
'Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them'
~ John 13
